I am a Dog Mom

Before I Was A Dog Mom


Before I was a Dog Mom:
I made and ate hot meals unmolested.
I had unstained, unfurred clothes.
I had quiet conversations on the phone,
even if the doorbell rang.





Before I was a Dog Mom:
I slept as late as I wanted
and never worried about how late I got to bed
or if I could get into my bed.




Before I was a Dog Mom:
I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies.


Before I was a Dog Mom:
I didn't worry if my plants, cleansers,
plastic bags, toilet paper, soap or deodorant
were poisonous or dangerous.


Before I was a Dog Mom:
I had never been peed on,
pooped on, drooled on,
chewed on or pinched by puppy teeth.



Before I was a Dog Mom:
I slept all night without sharing the covers or pillow.


Before I was a Dog Mom:
I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop a hurt.
I never knew something so furry and four-legged
could affect my heart so deeply.


We miss you Molly


Before I was a Dog Mom:
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important.





Before I was a Dog Mom:
I had never known the warmth, the joy,
the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the
satisfaction of being A Dog Mom.


Happy Mothers Day to all the Dog Mommy's out there
